Supporters splash cash on pastors for Kotoko prayers

Over 3000 Ghana cedis has been spent on prominent pastors by the supporter wing of Asante Kotoko in the Ashanti Region for divine prayers for the team.

The said amount was spent on five unnamed 'Men of God'  to spiritual fortify the team in their bid to recapture the Premier League title this season.

And this according to the Regional Circles chairman, Kwaku Amponsah is the reason for the team's impressive showing so far in their campaign which now sees them occupy pole position on the league standings.

"The amount spent on this operation is in far excess of what is being quoted in the media as 3000 Ghana cedis," he told Kumasi-based Angel FM.

"I want to state emphatically that the said operation is no juju but rather we met five pastors who confirmed to us that the team was down spiritually.

"We then decided to embark on this mission after consultations with the players who requested that we support them with intense prayers.

"No wonder the team is doing so well nowadays and therefore we will continue to support our team in that regard."

Kotoko travel to play Berekum Arsenals on Sunday on one of the difficult terrains in the local league but Amponsah insists victory has already been assured at least in the spiritual realm.

    we Thank God for his answers to kotoko prayers but i wish to state that the players should not think that blowing away clear chances will make them victors,They should take whatever chance that will come their and bury the the ball in the net and also score more goals when ever the opportunity comes their way.It seems that when ever kotoko scores a goal or two they relax and don't pressure to scores more unless they are on level pegging or down that one sees kotoko playing total football.

    we are grateful to the Almighty God for listening to our prayers. bt the question is, was it very necessary for the Supporter leaders to come public on that? they shd please consider the entire interest of the Kotoko family first before their individual selfish interest. Fabu 4 Life

    who are those pastors? if you can come out and tell us that you spent 3000 Ghana cedis for prayers, then give us the names of those pastors, you go to JuJu pastors and come and lie to us, but the truth shall come out one day, when Kotoko start loosing you shall come out and tell us the truth, Fabubububublouse, Dr KK Sarpong don't give them anything, they were trying to fabricate something to get money from fellow Kotoko supporters, beware of those false prophets,

    read your 2nd paragraph and make the necessary grammatical corrections. Who edit your stories? And who does the proof reading? Your errors are becoming too many of late. Aba!

    Paying Pastors for prayers?Wonderful prayer contractor's.Fabu,these so call pastor's are only after money they will never never fast for you.All they will do is fire brigade prayer which will back fire,let the players and the officials fast and pray once during the. week and see what the Lord will do for them.

    Any pastor who charges money for prayers is not genuine beware of fake pastors. prayers should always be free.
